twats in the park.

I\’m not a fan of music festivals, I must confess. There is something about queuing up in the rain to file into a huge open space flanked by portable toilets waiting to throw up their effluent which sets my teeth on edge.

Hunching curmudgeonly crab-like over a table in some dimly lit venue is infinitely more my style.
